Is there any way to find out when the Prelinger Archive has added new footage?

Thanks!

Sure - you can use this link:

http://www.archive.org/movies/movies-searchresults.php?search=&start=0&limit=100&sort=addeddate%20DESC&submit=yes&collection=prelinger

However, apart from a few re-encodes and some fixes of missing/incomplete material, I believe that there isn't being too much added to the Prelinger collection right now. Skip (who has been digitizing movies recently) is mainly working on the Feature Films collection, which is growing very nicely.

Thanks,
Simon.

Actually, I'm going to be adding between 100 and 120 new items this summer. This has been delayed far too long, but it IS happening. Will happen in fits and starts, as I need a bunch of tapes for production this summer, but I'll be shipping the first group of tapes to Skip shortly for him to digitize.

That's great news, Rick!

Because of this, I added a 'Browse By Latest Additions' and an RSS feed button to the top of the Prelinger collection page, so people should be able to tell easily when new items are being added.

Thanks,
